The '''American Academy of Political and Social Science''' was founded in 1889 to promote progress in the social sciences. Sparked by Professor Edmund J. JamesFalkner, Roland P. (1896) "Editorial" ''Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Science'' 7: pp. 74-77 and drawing from members of the faculty of the University of Pennsylvania, Swarthmore College, and Bryn Mawr College, the Academy sought to establish communication between ''scientific thought and practical effort''. The goal of its founders was to foster, across disciplines, important questions in the realm of social sciences, and to promote the work of those whose research aimed to address important social problems. Today the AAPSS is headquartered at the Annenberg Public Policy Center at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia and aims to offer interdisciplinary perspectives on important social issues.
